“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life,” said Jesus.

“Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them,” Jesus said.

“I am thirsty.”

Still Jesus.

For me, the truth, weight, tragedy, and joy of the cross dwell here, in three words uttered by the one person who never should have said them.
